When I saw this photograph for the first time, I noticed the shape of a white V-shape. It felt so pure and innocent, surrounded by a dark and black world. It reminded me that even in these dark and depressed times, we still have hope. The photograph reminds me of the last words I heard from Stanley Greene, when he was visiting Istanbul this spring. “Be simple,” he said.
To celebrate the agency's fifteen year anniversary, VII Photo Agency is offering a very special edition of our VII print sale: iconic prints.
The photographers of VII Photo Agency have relentlessly chronicled modern history and been present at most of the world's conflicts since the early 1980s. Since the agency's inception on September 10, 2001, VII has been deeply committed to communicating vital stories of those affected by social injustices and uprooted by war. With integrity at the core of its mission, VII has continuously been documenting the world that we live in.
All proceeds from this print sale will go towards advancing the agencies core mission: truth and justice.
For the next two weeks you can buy photos from VII Photo Agency.
